Are you Dancing on a Volcano?

Music is a great gift from God. Pius XI wrote: Music is among the many and great gifts of nature with which God, in Whom is the harmony of the most perfect concord and the most perfect order, has enriched men, whom He has created in His image and likeness.

The Crisis in the Church and the Spiritual Life

Since the Fall of Adam and Eve, humanity has been in crisis. Cain murdered Abel, we had Sodom and Gomorrah, Babel... God intervened, set aside the Jewish Nation to give the Messiah to the World. Unwittingly they managed to "launch" the Catholic Church into celestial "orbit" so to speak. From that first Good Friday, the devil has been ever seeking to "shoot" down the Catholic Church. 

Today, the Church is under a diabolical attack of a most insidious nature. When open, external enemies of the Church attack - we can "handle" it, so to speak. We expect - very sadly - the traditional enemies who deny Jesus Christ came in the Flesh to continue their assault on Our Lord and His Church. We expect the attack from freethinkers and non-Catholics. Horrible as acts of terrorism are, an even greater danger is the subtle promotion of naturalism that has spread like a cancer for well over two hundred years. Its effects are devastating. Catholics are indistinguishable from their pagan next door neighbour. Even those who attend the liturgy in Latin. If you don't believe me, just check out the cesspool of social media. Archbishop Fulton Sheen gave a talk in the mid 1960s. He had been out of the United States, and upon his  return he commented that he could barely recognize his own country, so vulgarized and debased had it become. Imagine what he would say today! 

The Abbe Chautard in his "The Soul of the Apostolate" warned that the actions of a Catholic, must - ABSOLUTELY MUST - be grounded in Christ Jesus. The first step is humility. Do I need to do this? Does God want me to do this? Am I doing it first and foremost for Our Lord? Or, perhaps I do not need to do this, God may not want me to do it, it is being done for praise, glory, attention. Or, it is motivated not by a desire of the conversion of the sinner, but by hatred, revenge, anger... I need to, you need to - always access our motivations.

Given the recent revelations concerning Theodore McCarrick - the Homosexual Network (as the late and much persecuted Fr. John O' Connor called them) in the Hierarchy - the devil will, and is working might and main to destabilize Catholics. 

My first duty is prayer and penance. If I spend one minute on the internet looking up these stories, perhaps I should spend ten minutes in prayer? If I spend half an hour - perhaps I need at least a Holy Hour before the Blessed Sacrament? If I say I don't have the time for Our Lord, then how can I claim to  have time for McCarrick? I end up giving less time to God and more to Belial and his minions.

I need to ask myself how did the fall of McCarrick and his fellow homosexual conspirators, come about? Simply put, they never had, or they abandoned the spiritual life. Then the devil swept in, pride took over and....

I need to increase my prayer life. The crisis in the Church demands Daily Mass, Confession, the Rosary, meditation, frequent visits to the Blessed  Sacrament.  If not today, tomorrow, or next week, but sooner or later I will fall. If the devil could sift the Jesuits and Dominicans, he certainly can sift me. If I deny this, then I have already acted with incredible pride and have made the first huge step into his camp. For example, every word I write on this blog, must be weighed carefully. Is there someone who is searching for the Faith? Is there someone who is seeking the Church? Great caution must be had. Souls are at stake. 

My actions, your actions must be to encourage others to develop the spiritual life. Everything we do, which is not grounded in the spiritual life, and imbuing others with the desire to seek the spiritual life will fail. Why? Because it is not founded on Our Lord Jesus Christ. "I am the Vine, you are the branches". 

Update: 7/30/2018 5:56 p.m., GMT. 

P.S. I very much doubt this will be re-tweeted; promoted etc. I hope I am wrong. Checking my stats, I am not wrong. This simply proves my point: most Catholics treat our holy religion as politics. Most Catholics- even those who attend the Latin Mass - are but mere politicians. 

We need to be crushed, we need to be driven into the underground. God is a jealous God: it is ALL or NOTHING. The Christians in ancient Rome knew this. Our so-called modern day Catholics do not. God will continue to punish us, as we continue to want to play Catholic and play pagan. This just will NOT do. It is ALL or NOTHING. Since we refuse to give Him ALL, He will give us nothing. NOTHING. 

P.P.S. Look for things to get much, much worse.

The Diabolical and Homosexuality

"And thus not only was their doctrine Satanical, but their life too was diabolical"
St. John Chrysostom 

How could men of God not discern the aura of evil that surrounded Theodore McCarrick? 

One angle to this entire McCarrick situation is the diabolical. Fr. Z noted that Theodore McCarrick was a horrible liar. In fact, so fiendish were McCarrick's lies that the priest from Madison points out that they were "nothing short of diabolical". 

In Sacred Scripture, the Prophet Moses, St. Paul and St. Jude condemn homosexuality as an abomination before Almighty God. Church Father, St. John Chrysostom warned us of the demonic aspect of homosexuality. Let there be no mistake: homosexuality is especially diabolical. It mocks God's creation, it directly profanes the Sacrament of Marriage, and mocks the sanctity of the Marital Act. It attacks martial unity, the family, and life. It attacks and blasphemes the Love and Unity of the Blessed Trinity. 

St. Paul and St. Jude link homosexuality with godlessness. St. John Chrysostom describes homosexuality as "hell appearing before its time". 

Yet, this grave satanic evil has entered into the Church, into the very priesthood. It has turned these debased men into modern day Judases, and they, in turn are trying to turn the Catholic Church into "a den of thieves", with themselves as servants of Baal. 

What could be so funny in the presence of a man of such evil?   

One other question remains. Perhaps some of you have experienced it. In the presence of someone who is evil you feel it, you just know there is something wrong. 

How is it that so many churchmen - so they keep claiming - never suspected, never had this feeling; this impression that they were in the presence of a man possessed by evil? We are now speaking of bishops. Men, who - presumably - are saying Mass every day, the Breviary, daily meditation, a Holy Hour, administering the Sacraments through visiting the sick, the disabled, spending time with the poor. Strangely, men who devote so much of their days to prayer and charitable works, were unable to feel the aura of overwhelming evil around McCarrick. In fact, McCarrick was billed on Fr. Thomas Rosica's Salt and Light as a "A tireless leader who has helped the poor and disenfranchised, the Cardinal has sought justice and promoted peace". How is it possible for such an eminent churchman to not detect pure evil? Even worse: how was it that Pope Francis did not detect the evil emanating from this horror? 

We are told, not one, NOT ONE suspected. Interesting. Not one - so they claim - felt he was in the presence of evil. Strange. Very, very strange

Let us conclude with total trust in Christ. He is in complete control of His Church. He is allowing this as a scourge and punishment for infidelity of most Catholics. God is a jealous God. He wants all or nothing. For decades, far too many Catholics, wanted to just turn up in church on a Sunday, and then go back home for the rest of the week and live "pagan-lite". Well, God will not be mocked. 

There is something we can all do. Our Lord commands us to pray for the salvation of souls, even for our enemies, even for those who are His enemies. Let us therefore firstly, pray for the victims, that they be given peace and healing. Let us pray that the criminal infiltrators repent, convert and expose the homosexual network as a beginning towards reparation. Evil as McCarrick is, the graces are there - just like they were there for Judas - to repent and convert. On his decision, hangs his eternity.

The Judas Syndrome: the conspiracy to suppress Humanae Vitae is a crisis of Truth and an act of Treachery

'Who can deny that our age is one marked by a great crisis, which appears above all as a profound "crisis of truth"'? 
Pope John Paul II 

Most Catholics - at least in Canada and in most of the "developed" world, are heavily involved in the active use of birth control. This means, that they are unable to receive the Holy Eucharist, and that the means of Grace is far weaker. It means a further collapse in the Church and society. For, as the Church goes, so goes the world. This, from the former CCCB President, Archbishop Brendan O'Brien, 2004: 

In Canada, where the vast majority of couples including Catholics use one form or another of artificial contraception, the dangers that Paul VI foresaw with the arrival of the Pill have become real: marital infidelity, sexual promiscuity and pre-marital sex.

One might ask the archbishop and his brother bishops: "Your excellencies, what have you done over the past ten years to rectify this situation"? 

His Holiness Pope Francis - once again - reiterated the unchangeable doctrine of Humanae Vitae. The Pope's statement has been referred to as a "ban" in the neo-modernist Crux. Rubbish. It is doctrine. It is Truth. It is the truth about the human person. "Bans" can be lifted, truth does not change. We discover truth, we do not create it. I conform my mind to the truth. I do not create truth. Truth is independent from my mind! Unfortunately, there seems to be a cabal in Rome that wish to water down or even nullify Catholic teaching. They will fail utterly. 

Catholic media has made much of the Pope rejecting "same-sex marriage", but have distinguished themselves in burying or fudging within their reports his support of Humane Vitae. The Catholic Register exemplified this, with not even a word about Humanae Vitae. Yet, most "Catholics" even those who incredibly see nothing wrong in intrinsically evil homosexual acts, are not planning a "same-sex marriage" (or more correctly, a "homo" non-union).  But they are supporting and acting upon the intrinsic evil of abortion and contraception. This should be the Catholic headlines! "Official" Catholic media should be informing the laity that the use of contraception is a grave sin, and that until they repent and confess they are prohibited in receiving the Blessed Sacrament. The Catholic News Agency carries a report on Pope Francis, but the report does not even use the word "sin" once. Is "sin" now the unmentionable word? 

The Popes have preached indefatigably on the truths of the human person. No one listened. In fact, not only did they not listen, they rebelled. In Canada we had the tragedy of ex-priest Gregory Baum (rightly referred to as an "arch heretic" by Monsignor Vincent Foy) poisoning many minds and leading to the monstrous sin called "The Winnipeg Statement".  We even had the scandal of the CEO of Salt and Light TV, (who is also the Holy See Press Office English language spokesman), publicly praising Baum. This priest has not repented, not lost his position, but seems to be protected by churchmen in Canada and in Rome, who, at the recent Synod were busy trying to undermine St. Pope John Paul II.  Truly the crisis is deep. It may well exceed, as Cardinal Ratzinger suggested in "Salt of the Earth" the Arian crisis; it is certainly worse than the Protestant crisis of the 16th century. 

It is quite evident to any Catholic that following this rebellion by the bishops (though individual bishops opposed that act of treachery) Grace was cut off. The bishops of Canada - collectively - were saying that they were ashamed of Christ and His teachings. Well, He, in turn, became ashamed of them before His Father. Grace was cut off. A branch, once cut, withers and dies. It still looks alive when freshly cut, but after a while decay sets in. So too, with the Church in Canada, having rebelled, it was "cut off". The rot, was not immediate, but slowly, inexorably, the rot spread and we are where we are today. 

Christ never abandons His faithful. He will always provide faithful priests for His flock. But it means that unless, and until, the bishops of Canada publicly repent of this gross act of rebellion, there will be no change, no rebirth of the Church in Canada. God will not be mocked. 

When our now sainted Pope John Paul II pleaded and demanded that the bishops teach sexual morality: what was done? When the venerable and much loved Pope Benedict XVI reiterated this teaching and called upon even greater efforts to return to true morality, what was the response? 

When was the last time you heard a priest denounce the evil of abortion, that contraception, fornication are all grave sins? When was the last time you heard a bishop denounce such evils, which are rampant amongst Catholics!? Silence means at minimum cowardice and some form of collusion. It means malfeasance in office, it means the betrayal of the command to preach the Gospel. It exhibits the mindset of a Judas. It is the Judas Syndrome.

Open Letter to Fr. Thomas Rosica: Please correct the "LGBT" All Inclusive Ministries

Dear Fr. Rosica, 

The "LGBT" ministry organization, All Inclusive Ministries (AIM), has announced that you will be "presiding" and "sharing with our community" at the monthly Mass this coming July 28, 2018, at Our Lady of Lourdes church in downtown Toronto. 

Before I continue: please do not misunderstand me. I believe you should be going to AIM. What better moment to preach that Jesus loves those suffering from same-sex attraction and to call those who have engaged in homosexual acts to repent, confess and be reconciled with Our Redeemer? 

Homosexual acts are, as noted in the Catechism of the Catholic Church,  "acts of grave depravity", "intrinsically disordered" and "contrary to the natural law". As such they are "sins gravely contrary to chastity".  Unfortunately, there are those in AIM who do not share our Catholic belief, and openly reject Christ's Law.  

On August 23, 2016, AIM shared the following to their official Facebook page: 
There are those whose theological project will always be to prove that gay love is something other than love. That proof can never be had. Gay love is love, and if Jesus was correct that the law is summed up in love, then homosexuality is hardly unbiblical. And if the end of natural law is to love rightly and fiercely, homosexuality is hardly immoral or unethical.

 Fr. Rosica, You are an influential man. Your influence is growing here in Canada, and in your home country of the United States of America, where your close associations and friendships with American bishops is noticed on both sides of the 49th. I believe it is accurate to say that you count the ranking Prelate of the United States, Donald Cardinal Wuerl, as your friend. It is no exaggeration then, when AIM states that you are "one of the most influential personalities in the Catholic world..."  

Fr. Rosica, as a Catholic priest, confidante and advisor to Our Holy Father, Pope Francis, and friend of cardinals and bishops, the words you say carry great influence. Do not underestimate the good you can do for these poor people: you have an opportunity this coming Saturday, to correct the many grave errors of All Inclusive Ministries.

Please permit me to direct you to a man whom I think it best to address this issue of same-sex attraction; to a man who has been to hell and back, a man who once was a member of the "gay community", a man who - you will be very sad to know - was actually told by several Catholic priests to not give up the "gay lifestyle"! I speak of Joseph Sciambra. 

Perhaps you heard of him when you preached your mission at Holy Redeemer church when you were in San Francisco? You may also be aware that he conducts a faithful mission to persons suffering from same-sex attraction. However, you may not be aware of the dangers and dissent that AIM presents to such persons, dangers which Joseph has fully documented.

I urge you to study Joseph's website. 

I urge you to especially review his detailed article on the long history of dissent by AIM. 

Disturbingly, AIM also openly teaches a very dangerous, gnostic flavoured idea: that homosexuality is actually God's gift to the human race. This error presents same-sex attraction not as a result of Original Sin and sin in a fallen world, as a cross to bear and offer Jesus, but as a positive blessing, a "special sexual gift" as "God's handiwork". Fr. Rosica, such errors only create confusion and encourage those with same-sex attraction to act on their temptations.
On September 20, 2016, AIM posted the following to their Facebook page:
“Homosexuality is one of God’s most significant gifts to humanity. To be gay or lesbian is to have received a special blessing from God. All humans receive their own special graces from their creator, but God has chosen some to be gay and lesbian as a way of revealing something about God-self that heterosexuals do not.” 

“Just as God has given a certain gift to priests, brothers or sisters in religious life to follow the gospel with a certain public character, so God has given to gay men or lesbian women a special sexual gift which shows forth the diversity and beauty of God in our world in a public way. All creatures of God show forth God’s handiwork, but the world also needs variation so that the richness of this handiwork is made unmistakably evident. God gives gays and lesbians the rather startling variation of their sexuality to help their brothers and sisters have greater insights into the reality of their God.”

The Catechism encourages those suffering from same-sex attraction in these words: These persons are called to fulfill God's will in their lives and, if they are Christians, to unite to the sacrifice of the Lord's Cross the difficulties they may encounter from their condition.

I end with words of hope for those suffering same-sex attraction, in the words of the late, gentle and holy Monsignor Vincent Foy. You will be very happy to know that the Monsignor - to his dying day - prayed for the conversion of your friend, Gregory Baum.

Monsignor Foy wrote: 
All can pray for homosexuals; we should never deviate from charity towards them while never condoning homosexual activity. We can give homosexuals the example of lives lived in chastity and goodness.
To all homosexuals we say: Peace, Hope, and Joy in your daily pursuit of chastity and holiness. God be with you! May you always keep in your hearts the words of St. Paul, “You are not called to immorality but to holiness".

Sincerely yours in Jesus, Mary and Joseph,

REESE FALLON: Requiescat in Pace

REESE FALLON 2000-2018

Please pray for the repose of the soul of Reese Fallon, a young Toronto woman, murdered in cold blood by an Islamic terrorist. Please pray for Reese's family and friends who are suffering so horribly. Our Lord commands us too also pray for our enemies. Pray they repent and convert to the True Faith. 

Eternal rest grant unto her O Lord, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon her. May the souls of all the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.

Incline Thine ear, O Lord, unto our prayers, wherein we humbly pray Thee to show Thy mercy upon the soul of Thy servant Reese, whom Thou hast commanded to pass out of this world, that Thou wouldst place her in the region of peace and light, and bid her be a partaker with Thy Saints. Through Christ our Lord. 

+ Amen +

Cardinal McCarrick was protected by HOMOSEXUALS in the AMERICAN HIERARCHY!

"Fr" McCarrick with one of his abuse victims

Theodore "Cardinal" McCarrick is an evil, diabolical man. 

He is a child molester. 

He is a vicious, sexual pervert. 

He was KNOWN as a vicious, sexual pervert and predator. 

He was PROTECTED by VERY powerful members of the PRESENT American  Hierarchy. 

At this time I will say no, but be assured friends, Catholics (seminarians, priests and the laity) in the Archdioceses of New York and Washington know what I mean. I have been told on very good, reliable authority. 

Watch and pray. There are very, very powerful active homosexuals in the US Hierarchy. They were and are covering for vicious, evil men who preyed on boys, teenagers and seminarians. These men are EVIL and servants of the devil.

Theodore McCarrick should be tried and if found guilty, hanged. 

The men who enabled him, covered for him, should be tried and if found guilty, hanged.

St. Maria Goretti ~ a light in the darkness of sexual debauchery

"It is impossible for anyone who leads an impure life not to grow weak in the Faith"
St, John Chrysostom, Sermon 1. De Verbis Apost. 

Today, the Church celebrates the virgin-martyr, St. Maria Goretti. Surrounded as we are, by a world drowning in sin, we would do well to meditate upon her life. Me and you. Anyone of us can fall, at any time, at any place. For those who have fallen, let us pray they get up, go to confession and amend their lives. 

Today, while most in the world - sadly including Catholics - are off indulging in impurity, we should resolve to commit even more strongly to Christian purity. Purity now is regarded as silly and old-fashioned. Sexual indulgence is considered "progressive". Toronto is witnessing an interesting case before the courts. The police have recently arrested a homosexual predator who has been charged with killing at least eight other homosexuals. This is the result of sin. Sexual sin also leads to insanity. Fr. John O'Connor spoke many times about the sexual addiction of homosexuals, and that gradually these poor, tragic men go insane with lust. 

We must also not compromise with indecency - we should even more strongly oppose indecency, as it flows from impurity. Indecency de-sensitizes a person to fast track them into accepting impurity and unchaste living.  

Catholics must resist the world's encouragement to approve of divorce and "remarriage" (really adultery), masturbation, fornication, pornography and other sexual sins: we should even more strongly repeat the words of our saint: "no, it is a sin, you will go to hell".

DEATH is a "core Canadian value"

Recently a letter to the editor of a Canadian newspaper contained a hymn of praise to death. The writer suggested that Canadians were doing their families, friends and society a favour by killing themselves. 

The young (through pre-natal infanticide - "politely" called abortion. One local Toronto abortion mill even described the killing of a child as "the gentle removal of pregnancy tissue..."), the disabled, the sick, and the elderly (through post-natal homicide - "politely" called euthanasia) are all being targeted.

The young, the elderly, the disabled, the mentally ill are, we are told "a problem". In reality, as a Toronto priest recently said "they are a blessing". 

But our society does not seek blessing. In fact, the State is proclaiming these sanctioned killings as "core Canadian values". 

We should, in a sense, be happy on "Canada Day", that these horrors are being forced on us more and more. Evil must be exposed, and the boil must burst. We have sat by - we still continue to sit by - as the "culture" of death grows all around us. 

When was the last time Canadians protested outside an abortion mill? 

When was the last time Canadians shut down an abortion mill? 

When was the last time Canadians protested outside hospitals providing "physician assisted suicide"? 

When was the last time you heard that Planned Parenthood is packing up and leaving your city or Province? 

When was the last time you heard legislation was being prepared to STOP or LIMIT pre and post-natal State sanctioned killings?  

From the outstanding blog, Everyday for Life Canada

The Justin Trudeau Liberal government is doing its best to further weaken the family in Canada. Canadians pay to intentionally kill tens of thousands of unborn babies each year, all covered by the government health plan. There is plenty of money, to the tune of $650,000,000, to export abortion to the rest of the world. Since Canada legalized last year euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide, funds are there to have Canadians killed at the hands of the state.

However, beginning in 2016 income splitting for families where only one parent works is no longer permitted. The Family Tax Cut has been removed. This gave families where one parent works and the other stays home to raise the children. If the working mother or the father was making say $80,000 a year, by transferring some of that income to the other spouse the family could get up to a $2,000 tax refund. This is no longer possible thanks to the Liberal government.

Please read the entire article here. 

Dear Canadian friends, as you relax at home this long weekend, please remember that Taquisha McKitty is about to be murdered by the Canadian State.
